In the cold climes of Kashmir, in a village called Kanihama, the lives of a chosen few are spent in weaving a magic spell of warmth and colour. It is the Kani Shawl. Pashm is no doubt among the finest fibres ever woven. But initially, it is no more than a greasy mass. That is because it comes from the goat, mixed with all sorts of dirt and coarse hair from the animal’s outer coat.
To transform this material into a fabric of gossamer finesse, takes all the artistry and skill of Kashmir’s gifted artisans.
The design is formed on the scarf by the manipulation of small wooden sticks called ‘kanis’. These interlock their respective coloured threads as they complete each weft of the warp. A single Kani can have around thirty colors. An artisan takes months, working consistently 5-6 hours a day, to produce this delicate piece of art.
